Adware.Verticity.B or Adware:Win32/Verticity.B was firstly recorded in October of 2008, and this is a malicious adware application, which will be used by cyber criminals to lure out your money. This advertisement supported malware is known to travel via various security backdoors, and even though it is possible to catch the infection via spam email attachments or other channels, it is most likely to travel via bundled downloads. After infiltration, the infectious application may connect to the www.adsrve.com domain to download and present malware on your Windows screen. To support this, hackers, who will also ensure that malware is spread through computers, will inject a specialized code into your system, so that multiple ads could come through pop-up windows or screen bars. There is no way of telling whether the adware will not track and record your personal data, but there is a high chance that together with this malicious application others are already processing quietly in your PC, so you should remove Adware.Verticity.B and make sure to inspect your Windows for other possible infections.
The dangerous application is enabled by two highly dangerous executables ms.exe and EtherDetect_setup.exe, both of which will work together to use your personal computer to the maximum. EtherDetect_setup.exe will delete system’s processes, hijack others and add products to the Registry. The malicious component is the one to blame for all the advertisements coming your way, because cyber criminals will enable this .exe file to release all of the pop-up notifications. The second, cloaked executable is ms.exe, and this file will connect to the Internet, add RUN keys to the startup programs, delete processes, and will modify Firewall settings. Ms.exe will not need any of your authorization to connect to Instant Messaging accounts, and cyber criminals could use them to spread the infection even further. And what is worst about this dangerous file is that it will employ the rootkit functionality, which will make it impossible to find malicious files, terminate their processes and delete Adware.Verticity.B.
Adware.Verticity.B can jeopardize your personal information greatly, or even use your personal accounts to delete the infection, which is why you should remove the infectious application from your system right away. Since this adware is rootkit, it is not recommended to delete it manually; therefore, automatic removal software is the next best thing. Install legal tools and have the malicious program deleted in no time.
